The Colorado Department of Transportation has announced restrictions for all commercial air travel trailers traveling to and from Colorado.
John Hickenlooper said in a statement that the new restrictions will apply to trailers traveling between the city of Denver and the town of Fairbanks, Alaska, beginning July 1, 2018.
The new restrictions are the result of the state’s $1.6 billion 2015 budget, which was approved by voters in November.
Hickencoopers new transportation budget included a $50 million increase for the state budget.
The state also has increased the state cap on carbon dioxide emissions from vehicles.
The cap will be set at 20 percent of the vehicle’s CO2 emissions in 2020.
The governor’s statement says the restrictions apply to all commercial trailer vehicles, including those used for trailers that are being towed or that are used for long-haul road trips, or those that travel at a speed of 60 mph or more.
It also includes commercial trailers traveling on highways.
